From the moment Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came on the scene, left-wing media outlets declared her the future of America. For months we’ve seen websites gush over this self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist. But after only a few months in office, the shine is off the apple. A new poll came out. Looks like AOC is in big trouble.
AOC’s fame began last summer, when she stole the primary seat from a 10-term Democrat. That stunning victory shook the party. Countless other Democrats tried to follow Cortez’s playbook by lurching left. But only she got a bump because of her idiotic promises, like Medicare for All and the abolition of ICE.
She easily won her seat in the New York district. But once she entered Congress this January, it was all downhill.
AOC frequently appeared uninformed during interviews and appearances. Her Twitter feed is an endless parade of nonsensical statements and assertions. Even when members of her own party correct her—men and women with experience and know-how—she responds like a bratty teenager.
But the worst was yet to come, when she promised a country-changing new proposal called the Green New Deal. This environmental-themed legislative proposal—she claimed—would revolutionize our economy and “save” the earth.
When it was released, it was immediately mocked by everyone. It was incredibly amateurish and unrealistic. Among the many things it called for was 100% renewable energy, paychecks for people who do not want to work, and the elimination of air travel.
That’s when many began to realize the horrible mistake they made when they elected this young, ignorant, inexperienced child to public office. AOC was a former bartender and failed businesswoman. She sought public office, like so many others, because it promised wealth, respect, and success—without the work.
But even she can’t pull it off. Now, a new poll shows she might not be in public office for long.
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “unfavorable” rating has skyrocketed now that she has become more well-known, according to a new poll from left-leaning Gallup…
In September, Ocasio-Cortez’s “favorable” vs “unfavorable” rating was nearly deadlocked at 24% and 26% respectively, now it stands at 31% and 41% respectively.
Gallup further noted that Ocasio-Cortez’s favorable rating was “underwater” among the majority of groups and was only viewed as favorable among 56% of Democrats. [Source: Daily Wire]
That’s bad news for AOC. Really bad news. But are we really surprised? This is a woman who got where she is by promising Hispanic voters that she’d get rid of ICE. ICE is the sole agency dedicated to protecting Americans from criminal aliens.
The same woman who jumped on the “Democratic Socialist” bandwagon, thinking it was the easiest path to victory.
But in an age when conservative, capitalist principles are winning under Donald Trump, how can any Democrat think that is a good strategy?
It’s not a tremendous surprise that AOC is tanking among Republicans (who even know who she is). But the fact that she’s underwater among Democrats—key demo’s she needs to succeed—is pretty telling. That proves even liberals are shocked by her unprofessionalism, childishness, and lack of experience.
As you might expect, AOC did not take the news well.
Ocasio-Cortez did not respond well to the news, which is typical of her as she normally reacts to criticisms by playing the victim card, or claiming that they are conspiracy theories, foolish nonsense, or she attacks the source.
“If you want to know what subconscious bias looks like, it’s a headline saying ‘AOC is underwater with every group EXCEPT women, nonwhites, and 18-34 year olds,'” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “So older, conservative white men are considered ‘everyone’ and everyone else is discounted as an exception. Cool” [Source: Daily Wire]
Wow. Much like her role model, Hillary Clinton, AOC blames everyone but herself. Hey, Alexandria, how about you take some of the blame yourself. You’re supposed to be serving everyone—not just minorities and women. That fact that older Democrats hate you is a big problem. Particularly because they are the ones that vote!
Her reaction to the news is typical for this woman. She has done nothing but blame other groups and people for her setbacks and mistakes.
Makes you wonder how long she’ll last in office.
